"oncein, Jicama is a Mexican root vegetable. A cross between a turnip, apple and potato."

MY REVIEW

"You would be better off using regular bacon instead of the turkey bacon. Turkey bacon has a MUCH higher salt content than regular bacon."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2011

"Everyone at the party loved its. Its even good without the bacon. I forgot to make the bacon and remembered it as I was walking out the door. But is was still good without it."
